Annual Physical Exams -

Regular pet check-ups are the best way to ensure your pet is at their optimum health. We recommend your pet be seen for an exam at least once a year and more frequently as they age, to prevent possible problems before they become serious. At each exam, we will discuss an individualized vaccination plan designed specifically for your pet’s personal needs.

"Thanks again to everyone for yet another successful trip to the clinic! All the dogs love to come and see all of you!"

Sick Animal Care -

While we do our best to provide the greatest preventative care, there may come a time when your animal becomes ill. We diagnose and treat a wide variety of problems your animal may encounter and do our best to work with you so that you understand and trust our diagnosis and every step of your pet’s individualized care plan.

Vaccinations and Preventative Care -

Whether your puppy or kitten needs its’ primary vaccinations or your pet needs protection from fleas and ticks, we can provide for you. We offer a variety of vaccinations and will work with you to develop the best personalized vaccination plan for your pet. We also provide a number of wellness care products including Frontline Plus, Heartguard Plus, Iverhart Plus and a comprehensive line of skin care products.

Surgery -

There are many kinds of surgeries that pets may require at some point in their lives. If your dog or cat is in need of surgery, regardless of what it is, both of our locations can provide for you. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment in our surgery suite including heart and blood pressure monitoring devices and the same anesthetizing procedures used in humans. Should your pet need a more invasive or complex surgery, we have Board-Certified surgeons available.

"Thank you for the successful surgery and the speedy recovery for Duke. We appreciate all of you, your expert care, and your great TLC."

"Thanks for taking such good care of me when I got declawed. I'm back to normal and my mom is much happier (and so is the couch!)"

Radiology -

Our state-of-the-art digital X-ray capabilities provide convenient, on-site support to more quickly and accurately diagnose what ails your pet. In special cases, we have the capability to make copies of the x-rays and burn them to disks, should you need a copy of them.

Dentistry -

Your pet's dental health is closely tied to their overall quality of life.  We pride ourselves in providing top-of-the-line dental care for your pet. Our digital dental x-rays gives us a better insight to what is happening below the gum line. It allows us to examine the internal anatomy of the teeth, the roots and the bone that surrounds the roots. Our dental services range from a basic cleaning and polish to more advanced oral care.

Puppy and Kitten Care -

We take special care of our youngest patients, ensuring that they receive top-notch care to set them up for long, healthy lives. When you bring your puppy or kitten to see us, we will make sure they are thoroughly examined, receive all their vaccinations, and are dewormed. In addition we will give you all the tools you need to raise the animal you can not only live with but the one you can’t live without for years to come.

Geriatric Pet Care -

Similar to humans, dogs and cats face increasing health problems as they age. Our staff will work to keep your pet healthy and active over the full span of their lives as well as help you understand the changing needs of your aging pet.

Microchip Implantation -

We hope that none of our clients ever have to feel the sadness of a lost or missing pet. Did you know that 1 in 3 pets will go missing at some point during their life span and without proper identification, 90% will never be found? We recommend implanting microchips into all pets for permanent identification which will allow for their best chance of recovery, should they go missing. Please ask us about micro-chipping your pet at their next visit!

Behavioral Counseling -

We strive to support you while investigating the fundamental causes of your pet’s behavioral problems. Often an animal’s behavioral problems (separation anxiety, excessive barking, chewing, spraying, or aggression) can be due to an underlying medical cause which may be treatable or better controlled with behavior modification with or without medication.

Nutritional Assessments -

As your pet grows, their nutritional needs change. We are happy to consult with you about all aspects of your pet’s nutrition. From choosing the best puppy or kitten food, to determining how much your pet should be eating, to switching to a special diet, the staff will be happy to aid your pet’s nutrition at any stage in life.

Euthanasia -

Pets are like family members and at Rice Pet Clinic we know how hard it can be to say goodbye. When that time comes, Rice Pet Clinic is here to support you in your decision making process. We strive to make the crossing of the rainbow bridge as smooth and peaceful as possible for both patients and their owners.
